CVS Plan: This Week and Black Friday

OK, so I have just 5ECBs on one account. Nothing on my other two accounts. I know! Between pregnancy and the Jewel Catalina deals, I have neglected CVS. I can tell not only because of my dwindling ECBs but also because we are almost out of paper towels and cleaning supplies.

I do have $30 or so on a gift card.

So what to do? Here's a plan that will get me from 5ECBs to more than 30ECBs in 3 transactions using just $2 off my gift card.

BEFORE OR ON THANKSGIVING:

Maybelline makeup (weekly deal) $8.99
----------------------------------------
- 3.00 mq from 10/26 RedPlum
------
5.99, pay 5ECBs and $1 off gift card
get $8.99ECBs

ON OR AFTER THANKSGIVING

2 Bic Soleil 12.00
1 Aussie 2.99
1 Hershey bar 1.00
5-hour energy pack 3.99
------------------------------------------
20.00
- 4.00 $4/$20 CVS Q!!!! (finally)
6.00 mq from 11/2 SS
1.00 mq from P&G 10/12
------
9.00, pay 8.99ECBs and 1 cent
get 20ECBs (12, 2.99, 1, 3.99)

Now, the question is, can I use that $4/$20 again? I'll just go for the $5/$30:

Johnson's Soft lotion 5.69
2 Colgates 5.98
Garnier towelettes 5.99
Sally Hansen nail color 3.79
Maybelline foundation 8.99
-------------------------------------------
30.44
- 5.00 CVS $5/$30
1.00 Johnson's mq
3.00 Colgate mqs
1.00 Garnier mq
2.00 Sally Hansen mq
------
18.00, pay 17ECBs and $1 off gift card
get 30.44ECBs
